    Or a nice pork lion chop. Slice a pocket in the middle and stuff it.

    We go through the busy day which is Christmas Eve with home made party food (smoked salmon on tiny squares of LivLife bread, Prawns/crab meat on Mini Gem leaves, Feta on half cherry tomato with black olive, Parma ham on melon, Nigella’s Devilled eggs, Pigs in blankets, Spiced biscuits in Christmas shapes for those who can). This year I will be adding Bacon & leek fritatas from Sainsbury's party range only 1.8 g carbs each. Son is great for knocking these up and when we have friends round for a couple of hours early evening its such a nice relaxed start to Christmas. On Christmas Day we have our main meal at 5pm in candlelight and again have the finger food with champagne at noon.

    I discovered this last year in the nearest posh garden centre - and loved it.
    Found it again today in Morrisons, and bought 5.
    I heartily recommend it to those who crave the usual mince pies.

    yes, it has dried fruit and a little gluten and some carbs.

    but it is significantly lower carb than a standard mp, and IMHO it is nicer.
